It's time for the Autumn Walk!

Can you join us? Let's walk the George Washington Bridge - and be driven to the tavern where George himself did meet his troops! 

Saturday, November 4, 2017
9:00am - 5:00pm (approximately)  We will meet at 9am on the New York side of the George Washington Bridge.  We will walk across it - a wonderful view, and an historic bridge story as well - and walk up one of the country's first scenic landmarks, the Palisades. 

We will be met at the end of our walk by a driver with his vehicle who will take us up to the 76 House, the oldest tavern in New York state, for a period-perfect respite from our trek over the Bridge and through the Woods!

Meeting Place: W. 178th Street and Fort Washington Avenue.  Have any questions? Ask here:, or call 917-921-9273.
